    You got some great advice from @desertskybulldogs about the shampoo and panalog. As far as diet, I would try a food with a protein that is not duck/chicken/turkey and see if that helps. I don't know if grains impact yeast but going grain free can help as well. I know some people that have yeast issues that stay away from grains or many carbs. Especially any wheat, potato, rice or corn. Is NVI duck grain free?
    Yes, he has always been on grain free but i may have to switch his food...

    Anti fungal shampoo, a good diet, panalog ointment should help it go away
    Where is the best place to get the shampoo n ointment?

    Nope, no rash on the skin really. It was a little more pink than the rest of her skin but nothing alarming. Mostly it was the rusty colored fur. Oh, it was on her belly around her va jay jay area too. She still gets a little pink under her armpits sometimes but I am just very careful to keep it dry. Plus she is on a grain free food that has beef as the main ingredient.

    apple cider vinigar,you can buy it at health shops ,make sure its unfiltered,i use it on annies itchy bits as shes still a bit itchy but not nearly as bad ,i also put it on her food as she wont take it in her water,just a desert spoon every morning,shes responding very well,but if it is a yeast problem then the only way to get rid of it is to not feed anything that can convert to sugar as carbs make sugar and sugar makes yeast,you may have to rethink kibble ,its only my opinion as the pics do look like bad yeast ,others may think differently ,but to be honest trying to deal with it yourself with natural remmedies is far better for the dog than medication which lowers the immune system thus leading to more problems and medication very rarely cures the illness just the symptoms,only my opinion though,karen

    i raw feed my dog,i have cut out all carbs as i believe she has developed a yeast problem at the moment its only minor ,the only way to tackle yeast in a dog is to cut out carbs and sugar,she hasnt licked her paws today and her belly and pits look good,so im hoping that the yeast is slowly comming out of her system,karen
